With United Airlines declaring Chapter 11, many people in the US are obviously unclear about this process. United Airlines is not going out of business; chapter 11 provides some protection form creditors as the carrier seeks to restructure.
This made me wonder about how US bankruptcy compares to that of other nations. Do struggling carriers simply disappear in various countries, or are their steps to try to turn the tide?
